Danieli Evans

Danieli Evans is a Ph.D. in Law candidate at Yale. Her research aims to draw from social and behavioral science to propose ways that law could better advance the widely-held ideals of equal opportunity and democratic self-determination. This relates several substantive areas of law, including discrimination, labor and employment, education, antitrust, consumer protection, policing and criminal justice, and administrative and constitutional law. Danieli's scholarship has appeared in a number of legal journals, including the Stanford Law and Policy Review Online, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, the Georgetown Law Journal Online, and the University of Cincinnati Law Review, among others.

Danieli holds a B.A. from the University of Miami and a J.D. from Yale Law School, where she was a student director of the Supreme Court Advocacy Clinic. After law school, Danieli served as a law clerk to the Honorable Diane P. Wood of the Seventh Circuit and the Honorable Harry T. Edwards of the D.C. Circuit. She also practiced litigation at Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel, and then served as a fellow in constitutional studies at the National Constitution Center. Before college, Danieli spent a couple years as a professional horse rider, and she still rides competitively as much as she can. She also spends a lot of time practicing yoga, rock climbing, and being outdoors.
